Re: Some NVDA Questions

Rui Fontes
 

Joseph, there are three versions...

From Tiflotecnia, Vocalizer Expressive;

From CodeFactory, Vocalizer Expressive only for NVDA, and;

Also from CodeFactory, Vocalizer Expressive in SAPI5.


All them are paid, but if you already have he license, the update will be free, at least it is free from Tiflotecnia.


Rui Fontes

Tiflotecnia, Lda.

Hi,
To find out, we need to know the actual Vocalizer driver version in use, as that'll help us locate the appropriate update. Note that the updated driver requires newer NVDA releases.

I am more comfortable with Voiceover but need to keep running Windows for some applications.

First, I'm still using NVDA 2019.2 because I have one purchased voice. Have any new voices been added to later versions? The purchased voice is Voiceover's Samantha voice or close to it.

One web pages, and maybe elsewhere, sometimes I hear 'unknown'. Not sure what element is spoken that way. Can I change it?

When NVDA speaks shortcuts, for example, ctrl-a, it speaks the letters. Can I change this so 'control' is spoken instead? Thanks much.

Re: Exchanging Acapela activation keys how's it done?

Kareen
 

Gerardo i think you do not have to deactivate your temporary license to activate the new one. I suggest you go to acapela menu in NVDA and then activate a new license. there enter your new code and press activate and see if the process will be successful. I think this will update your license and remove the temporary one.

Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.06.2 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.06.2 is now available. This is another compatibility update designed to prepare the add-on for future NVDA releases. For people using NVDA 2020.2 beta or earlier, you won’t notice any difference.

 

Important: the next version of Enhanced Touch Gestures (20.07) will require NVDA 2020.1 or later.

Cheers,

Joseph

locked Announcement: Two new lists and one new born community

Vlad Dragomir
 

hello all, glad to be back, it's been a while!
 
Preliminary notes:
1. I do apologise for the length of this email; if you do not enjoy long reads, I suggest you should skip this one.
2. Since this is only loosly related to the main topic of this list, I kindly request all those interested in this announcement to avoid responding directly to this email. Please use the provided contact details instead.
 
I have been using TeamTalk very often these months; my students seem to appreciate both the sound quality and the reliability of this platform. The client's interface does have its own logic, but it can be challenging sometimes to understand all its functionalities and be able to use it properly. I remember I spent a very long time trying to figure everything out the first time. Therefore, I decided to start a mailing list whose purpose would be to help those who have never used TeamTalk before, and also give experienced users a chance to exchange ideas and learn from each other. I expect TeamTalk Tips to be a relatively low-traffic list, but I do believe TeamTalk deserves its own list, along more popular ones like Skype, Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
 
In collaboration with a few friends, I have also made the decision of opening my own TeamTalk server to the world and try to start a new VI community. Its name is Inwards Sight, and its main multiple goals are as follows:
1. To offer a place for people to come together, spend good moments in each other's company, meet new friends and exchange thoughts and information about anything, from arts and culture to technology, accessible games, radio or any type of entertainment.
2. There'll be a space dedicated to serious learning and teaching, for those interested in learning a new skill or improving one they already have. For the time being, we are able to offer language courses, music related classes, computer/screen reader/MS office and GSuite  training,. I'm also trying to convince two professionals I know to come and teach programming and audio editing, but I'm still waiting for confirmation.
3. Last but not least, we'll try to offer live technical support for at least a few hours every week, to those who have problems with their computers and need assistance in trying to solve them.
 
We intend to keep these services open to everyone in the world, and completely free, although we'll be grateful to those who decide to donate according to their own possibilities.
 
Should you be interested in contributing to this new community, either as a friend, a student or a teacher, please do not hesitate to ask for more details, we'll be delighted to hear from anyone. We're also very grateful to all those who might be able to spread the word and tell their friends and acquaintances about this innitiative.
 
Contact:
 
If you want to join the TeamTalk Tips mailing list, you can visit this page:
https://groups.google.com/d/forum/teamtalk-tips
Alternatively, you can subscribe by sending an empty email to the following address:
teamtalk-tips+subscribe@...
 
For any questions related to Inwards Sight, or to obtain an account on our server, please send an email to metal_phoenyx@...
 
There is also a dedicated mailing list, which can be found here:

Best regards and thank you for your patience, this was a very long and boring email!
 
Cheers,

Re: Exchanging Acapela activation keys how's it done?

Gerardo Corripio
 

And if the license was purchased via a different Email address due to being Paypal? What would the process be? Also could I deactivate the 3-month one today, and activate the purchased one starting today, to avoid the hassel of when I wake up on the morning of July 1st, have the Covid one expired, and activate the new one then?

Hi. as i know if the new code is for a new license your license will be extended whenever you enter the new code in the acapela tts menu in NVDA. so just enter the new code in the activate license and the new license should be taken automatically without doing anything else.

I don't know - but just replying to suggest (particularly as you want to do it by the end of the month) that it might be worth contacting Acapela directly to ask. I expect you could probably use the acapela-nvda-mobilization@... address they setup to get the extended trial in the first place.

Re: nvda ocr

Your system focus remains where it was; just continue to use your arrow keys. It's not like JAWS where it's necessary to change back to your original cursor.
